Interior lights

Does anyone know why all the interior lights would quit working. Everything else works, the ac, plugs, refrig, but all of the lights just quit working. We have checked all the fuses and they look like they are all good. We have a 1970 LY and have just restored it, so we are new to air streams any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think that I'm Right in saying that all the lights are DC. Check the fuses in the UniVolt. In my trailer ther is one fuse for all the lights.

Ditto

Same happened to me. The fuses sometimes look right, but are still corrodet or broken inside. I was battling loose wires for a while as well. Take a good look at ALL the connections by the Univolt.

Im not having a problem with my interior lights but have decided to add a few ac lights while im remodeling the interior of mine. I did this to my sailboat for when its at the dock and was an easy job. It also provides me with 2 independant light systems, after all most campgrounds have electrical hookups. Has anyone added ac lights to theirs or are you just using lamps?

A/C lights

Hi Greg,
We only use A/C lights outside, for the "patio" area. I personally like the 12V lighting ambiance inside the trailer. I have these rope lights that run on 120V. We string them around the awning and near the bottom of the trailer for soft outside lighting.
I guess one could use plug in lamps if 120V lamps would be needed or desired. But that's more stuff to haul around and set up, why not keep it simple, is our motto.
